As we know, all bridess wear wedding gowns, if not a full length traditional dress, then certainly something very special for the day. It always used to be that case that a brides wore a white dress and a veil. However things have certainly moved on and these days we find at our wedding venue in Kent that bridess tend to choose either a colour that most flatters them or a colour that is part of her wedding “theme.”
Did you know that one of the very first women to wear a white wedding dress was Mary Queen of Scots? I certainly didn’t but white did not become the colour of choice until 1840 and the marriage of Queen Victoria. This really started the whole white wedding dress tradition after her wedding picture was published all over the world, and suddenly most young women wanted to emulate the queen and started wearing white.
When choosing your wedding gown, there are certain things you must keep in mind so that you look perfect on your special day. Choosing your dress is, for you, the most important thing in all your wedding plans and you want to make sure that it not only looks stunning but fits well and is, most important of all, comfortable to wear. Choose a dress that suits your body shape; choose one that is in proportion to your body.
Here are a few tips to help you choose the prefect dress based on your body shape.
- If you are short, choose an A-line style dress. This style tends to make you look taller. This style of dress is best if you don’t have a full skirt.
- The A-line shape is also great if you have a voluptuous figure. In that it will make you look taller and slimmer by focusing the attention on your height.
- If your midsection is smaller than your hips, then the best style of wedding gown to choose is something that focuses the attention on your upper body. Choose a full skirted gown and show a little of your back, shoulders and arms, and of course, the dress should not fit too tightly around your waist.
When you arrive here for your wedding in Kent we want you to look radiant and relaxed and most important of all ready to enjoy your ceremony and wedding reception.
